Waiting – Aleksandra Lekovic

Gallery RTS

20th April – 2nd May 2017

The photographs from the Belgrade’s homeless shelter capture the time and the space in which  the beneficiaries of different ages, psychical and physical conditions, are waiting for something. They are waiting to be put in a nursing home, waiting for the lunch time, coffee, a cigarette…waiting to go farther away. There’s no life course as we usually know it, because these people are not part of the system. Like some kind of visions, they float in the  space of the photographies, indifferent to /not aware of the beholding eye of the camera which confirms their absence from the value system that surrounds them.
